An Altamont teenager was injured in a weekend crash just before 4:30pm Sunday.

16-year-old Eve Higgs was traveling on Route 40, just west of Country Club Road, when Higgs lost control of her car. The vehicle struck a guardrail on the right side of the road, bounced off the guardrail, crossed the roadway and struck the left side guardrail of the railroad bridge.

Higgs was injured and was taken to HSHS St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham.

No citations were issued.
